Tip & How-To about Toro Garden

Toro won't run

All,
I thought my carb was shot, so I replaced it. Still, start but no run (and had to use starting fluid). THEN!!! I noticed the spring to the "rev limiter" (just below and towards rear of carb) was not "tight". The ****** bracket that holds the end of that spring had been bent down ~1/16" and that caused all this heartache. CHECK YOUR REV LIMITER!!!

How do I fix a mantis tiller that wont start


First, check your fuel lines to ensure they are not brittle from using gas with ethanol. I had to replace my fuel lines last spring.

Prime the carb and pull a couple of times. Pull the spark plug and see if it is wet or damp. Dry and clean the plug. If you have some starting fluid, give it a shot - replace the plug and wire, and give it a pull.

I don't think my tiller is getting any juice to the sparkplug. I changed the sparkplug and air filter, checked the oil and gas, but it still won't start.


disconnect the kill wire on the motor and then see if you get spark. If so its your switch, if not it either points or electronic coil or regular coil or condenser problem did you gap the pints correctly and was there a problem b4 you changed the points.
